Hello and Welcome! My name is Ebony Clayton, LCSW and I’m thrilled about the opportunity to work with you. If you’re reading this, you have taken the first step towards healing and personal growth. I have training and experience in working with: depression, anxiety, relationship problems/marital difficulties, God-image issues, interaction with the foster care system, infertility, adoption and post adoptive support, and working with adolescents.
I bring a well-rounded perspective into my therapy practice that integrates a wholistic (whole person centered) and eclectic approach, utilizing strategies that consider the interconnectedness of physical, spiritual, and mental/emotional health. Finding balance between these three is an important key to overall well-being.
I use several evidenced based therapies in my practice such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy.
Every person is unique in themselves and in their set of circumstances therefore I emphasize the key role of the minds cognitions in determining behaviors, and the interconnectedness between a person’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I structure my sessions based on client need while using unconditional positive regard and a nonjudgmental stance.
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Adoption and Foster Care, Codependency, Divorce and Separation, Forgiveness, Military and Veterans Issues, Women's Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy

Ebony has been my therapist for years and I cannot express how beneficial it has been to have her in my corner. She has guided me through so many downs and ups over the years. She is attentive and really listens but she also challenges you to be the best version of you while teaching you the tools you need to succeed.

I mostly wanted a Christian therapist that would bring me back to the Word and Ebony does that without being overbearing, weird, or self-righteous. We share a love of God and that helps me trust her guidance more. She listens and helps me refocus on God and balance focusing on myself to heal my heart. I absolutely recommend Ebony as a therapist!
